I know there have already been a few threads on this topic, but nonetheless, I would love to hear from AtoZ's international educators and how they found their overseas positions. Did you folks go through a recruiting company like Search Associates or ISS? Or directly apply to schools? When does the hiring season begin? I've heard most schools recruit in January but can start hiring as early as October. What were interviews like? Any information would be greatly appreciated! I'm mostly interested in private international schools (such as accredited IB schools), but would love to hear from ESL teachers and Department of Defense teachers, too. Thanks.
